“Decent Room... Skip the Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

We had a two queen suite with sofa bed. The room was clean. A little wear and tear but nothing to complain about. Friendly and helpful staff. Free breakfast but I'd rather pay for a decent breakfast sandwich instead. Egg patties and rubbery sausage doesn't cut it. This is standard fare at a lot of hotels chains. Give me a better price on my room and keep the breakfast.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with friends

The room were clean. We booked a room due to bad weather conditions. They were nice enough to let us check in early and let my husband check out late since he was waiting for me to get off work. They also let us use their stuff to clean our car off. They also have breakfast in the morning bright and early. Thanks again Country Inn, you made rough situation much easier on us.

Easy to check in and out of. Very clean from the lobby, room, bathroom, and the dining area. Breakfast was a LOT better than expected and the staff spent a lot of time keeping it fresh. We didn't try the pool area but I'm sure it is as nice as the rest of the facility.

This is our new #1 choice place to stay in Columbia.

I was traveling through Columbia on my way to Utah and stopped to see if I could find a room. I came across the Country Inn and Suites on Tripadvisor, read the reviews and decided that it should meet my needs. I was greeted by a pleasant young lady who not only gave me a quiet room as I requested but she also gave me a great rate through AAA.

The room was awesome, newly decorated, clean and modern. The breakfast was very good as well. I left rested and relaxed. I will surely stop here again on my return trip.

I always stay here getting the best rate and a great room, quiet, with a fine breakfast and magnificent staff. There is a TGI Fridays next door and a grocery store on the other side.....from the hotel is relatively easy to get to other establishments, but Columbia is not any easy town to get around in.

This was the first time we have stayed at a Country Inn and Suites in some time and the experience was excellent. Rooms were nice, bed was nice, very clean and the breakfast was good. They had a good exercise room. Location is near the highway but a little far from the University of Missouri Campus. But, Columbia is not that big.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

This hotel was very nice in most ways. The rooms were nice and clean. Breakfast was wonderful with a wide variety of hot and cold items. The coffee, tea and cookies available all the time was also a very nice touch. The only downside, and potentially a big one if you're traveling with kids who want to swim, is that the pool is TINY. The picture on the hotel website is very deceiving. The pool is probably about 20 foot square. It was so small that my kids decided it wasn't even worth swimming in. If an indoor pool is not important to you, than I have absolutely no reservations.

Room Tip: The pull out couch is very uncomfortable. I wouldn't count on it as a sleeping option unless you...
